Foundation Initiative: Health

Wireless technology is delivering better healthcare outcomes at lower cost to patients. From wearable wireless monitors to lifestyle apps, our connected lives are keeping patients better informed and in charge of their healthcare choices. The Wireless Foundation’s programs demonstrate how mobile technology keeps people healthier and can even save lives.


Text4baby is the first mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health through text messaging. The Wireless Foundation, on behalf of its carrier members, has fostered the program through its first 4 years with donated text messages making the service free to subscribers.
